BABF’s 6th Blogiversary {Blog Party, Quiz, + New BAB!}

Hello friends! I can hardly believe that six years ago today, I hit publish on the first post on my new blog, Build a Bears Furever. On March 4th, 2017, my life was changed for the better.

I know we’ve seen a lot of new faces over the years though. I’d wanted to do something really special for today, but quite honestly I wasn’t sure what.

Changes for 2023

Hello friends! Now that blogmas is officially over…it’s time to talk about 2023! I feel like the new year is always a time to reflect on the past and make changes for the future.
